Additional Information

Language packs can be customised in customer deployments depending on the needs of the organisation.

An i18n bundle can be extracted from the Administrator console and used to translate to the desired language.

Only the 'SafeShare Administrator' will have access to extract an existing i18n bundle, or upload a new i18n bundle.
